Do I Do?
Okay, so you've made the
leap into the loving arms of Christ. Now comes time to wipe the
tears from your eyes, the dirt from your knees and take this awesome
feeling of the Holy Spirit out into the world. But what does that
mean? Are you supposed to grab a bible and start screaming the gospel
from the corner of the gym? Not quite, but here are some things
you can do.
Tell those you love what has happened
to you...like they won't notice
the new look on your face and the glow you carry. Don't forget to
it with us too!
Start reading your bible.
If you don't already have one, get one. There are lots of places
to get them including here,
or you can probably get one for free at your local church. If you
can, find a bible with some sort of devotional built in. The God's
Word for Students Bible is a great choice, but it might be hard
to find. There are many others to choose from that are specifically
written for students. Here are a couple of suggestions from Pastor
- Students Life
Application Bible: NLT - This bible is easy to read, and
it has a lot of helpful aids, commentaries, character summeries,
and just lots of stuff. Students should be able to find pretty
at much any major book carrier.
- The Youth Bible
- This Bible has a topical subject finder, a "Where does
it happen in the Bible" index, "sidelight" notes
throughout and DEVOTIONS! This bible is somewhat of a rarity due
to containing both devotions and other important bible study tools.
Don't forget, Youth4Him.com also has an
Find someone or a group of someone's
to study the Word with. Bible studies
are a fantastic way to build your faith, your love for Christ and
those that love Him too, and also to learn a ton about who He is
and what He says in the bible.
Pray a lot.
Give thanks, ask for constant forgiveness (we all sin all the time),
pray for those you love and those you don't love so much (the bible
says we should do that,) pray for anything that is on your heart,
and give your life, all of it, to Jesus. Don't
know how to Pray?
Find a Youth Group.
Seek out friends that go to a Youth group at a local church. You
can also search Youth4Him for one.
